"A strong rival for souls" -- the Catholic Church proves itself skilled in international diplomacy once again today, with a missive from the Vatican warning Catholic women of the dangers awaiting those who marry Muslim men. Go ahead, read that sentence again...whaaaa? The document grumbles that Muslims are not making progress on key issues like "fundamental liberties, the inviolable rights of the person, the equal dignity of man and woman." Oh right, I forgot, the Catholic Church knows all about equality of the sexes...mmmmmm, smell that irony!
